In the past few months we’ve noticed a lot more cases of elbow pain – primarily Tennis Elbow, at our Sydney based Precision Physio clinics, so with that in mind we want to help you to understand more about this particular injury and how to spot, treat and recover from Tennis Elbow.
What is Tennis Elbow?
Lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, is not limited to tennis players. The backhand swing in tennis can strain the muscles and tendons of the elbow in a way that leads to tennis elbow. But many other types of repetitive activities can also lead to tennis elbow and these include extended time using the mouse or keyboard, carrying bags, painting, or using tools around the house or garden.
Tennis Elbow symptoms lasting more than six weeks become sub-acute and beyond three months, as chronic tennis elbow.
